Premier League: Covid Passports, timed entry slots and face masks - what fans can expect at matches

Premier League and EFL clubs are still awaiting guidance on the use of Covid Passports and face masks at matches, with little more than three weeks before the first game in the top flight and only two in the lower divisions.

Sportsmail understands that top flight officials were already urgently working on a scheme for Covid certification from match round one, which begins on August 13, after Government made clear that is the expectation.

And now they are desperately seeking further clarification following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's declaration last night that everyone who wants to go to a nightclub from the end of September will have to show proof of having received two doses of a Covid vaccine.
